there is no budget. we can't get a budget here because senator harry reid doesn't want that to happen. that is where there is a lot of tie up. as a rin governor in a very democratic state of massachusetts he got things passed. >> he did. it's a particularly effective discussion for him to develop because as you know and you and i had this discussion most americans want to see things get done of they want to see problems solved and what mitt rom fee has done is fix things. and this is to work as cross the line. he's had to do that when running lirp olympics so that is something american people want to hear. i would be willing to bet if you looked at focus groups and polls during that that part of the debate that probably scored off the charts. it's a theme he needs to develop within the remaining days of the campaign. >> any thoughts looking ahead to the debate on foreign policy? it's not something governor romney has been having a lot of experience in. and any thought on that one? >> well, there is a target rich environment. the president has a dismal record there. tonight talking about domestic pol
something that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid put together. >> governor romney is going to have a busy first day, because he's also going to repeal obamacare, which will not be very popular with democrats. >> reporter: joining me now is our political analyst. does it come down to preparation and what about the body language that said something to the audience tonight? >> well, preparation does matter. and let's remember that mitt romney has had 18 months to practice this. he's had lots of debates, been on it much longer than frankly the president, who has been unopposed. in some ways, with respect to preparation, what you saw with the president was someone who had not played the game of basketball for a long time, a pickup game today, and he forgot some of the rules. like you saw right here, the president was not aware of how he was coming across on television. didn't look good. the governor on the other hand has done a lot of these and it showed tonight. he was much more practiced and polished. >> we want to talk about the format as well. jim lehrer is being criticized for not really
be an interesting question for romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? or to get to sit with mark warner another senate. and i think the same for president obama. i think republicans have a say are underestimating how strong obama would be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner can hold up is the 15th of march. i don't think he can hold all the republicans. they are stronger than it used to be. a figure of more leverage present because of campaign finance issues and other things, but having said that, obama going to the senate and there are some equivalents in the house. even if the democrats don't control all of congress, you would have leverage to go around leadership. in the case of boehner, suspect he would mind. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with a bomb and 2013 if romney has lost. but i think people say bipartisanship come up with various leadership negotiation. the other is picking off the members against the wishes of leadership. >> the premise of both of those is there has to be personal relationships. the ambassador pointed out well that governor romn
do care very much about all the things that harry reid and obama talked about when it comes to oil and coal and the whole 9 yards. i think romney did a really fabulous job and trying to get obama to talk about that, but he did not. >> that you are the independent which both campaigns were centering on the day. have you made a decision? >> yes, definitely. >> who is going to be? >> i watched it live and then i rerun.d a refun i am even more sure now that i was before it went on live at 9:00. backs who are you going to vote for? >> romney is not going to continue to kill our economy. he is not going to continue to kill jobs. he will not continue to throw money at green jobs like solyndra and all that. obama did not answer that question either, did he? >> in about seven minutes or so we will show the debate again. you may have to go to bed by then. we invite you to go to our debate hub. you can see portions of it tailored to each section. a lot of media is looking in analyzing what was said between the two men tonight. here is a labette of the dialogue that took place tonight. -- a li
and harry reid thought was the best answer and drove it through. what we did, 87% democrat, we worked together. 200 legislators, only two voted against it. we did not raise taxes. he raised the by $1 trillion. we did not cut medicare. we did not have medicare, but we did not cut it by $700 billion. we did not put together a board telling people what treatments they can receive. we put people in a position -- we did not put people in a position where they would lose the insurance they have an wanted. the cbo says up to 20 million people will leave -- lose their insurance. a study said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. for those reasons, for the tax, medicare, this board, and for people losing insurance, this is why the american people do not want obamacare. not do this. the republicans put out a bipartisan plan that was swept aside. i think something this big and important has to be done on a bipartisan basis. we have to have a president i can reach across the aisle with input from both parties. >> gov. romney says this has to be done on a bipartisan basis. th
attacked obama for doing too much to allow harry reid and nancy pelosi in the health care policy. sometimes romney says obama puts his plans out too much, and other times it's too much to negotiate with congress. romney's approach here has not been to not put out specifics on his policy. it's been to not put out the hard parts. i want it to cut the budget by $7 trillion or taxes by $5 trillion, but he doesn't tell you the details. am i surprised that led to a win for him? not really. i don't think last night of a trick. romney came and was a better debater. i don't think president obama walked into that debate or none straight demonstrated a clear vision of what he tried to get mitt romney to say, what points to pin him down on. romney won the debate. last night romney was more skilled. it doesn't change the policies. >> ezra, will the strategy work in the next two debates that heavy here? will this vague strategy work with foreign policy and the next debate beyond that? >> i think that the obama team is going to be more ready for what romney's able to bring to the debate than they were in
that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought something was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in a legislature 87% democrat, we worked together, whisking aside the 10th amendment which gives states the rights for these kinds of things. is not the course for america to have a stronger more vibrant economy. >> romney delivered a conservative argument and criticism over the obama agenda that the right has been clamoring for. when wall street regulation came up, he made a more centrist approach, repeatedly pointing out his support for regulation while eliminating excess. >> i'd have regulation, but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. that's one of the unintended consequences of dodd frank. it wasn't thought through properly. we need to get rid of it because it's killing regional and small banks. >> the romney-ryan ticket plansa agenda amounting to trickle down government, both romney and his running mate will be appearing here in virginia today. another campaign stop tomorrow and then florida through the weekend, precede ago big f
one of the biggest disasters. neil: harry reid even questioning that, his devotion, and whether he's a good representative of mormonism. >> that's the best, one of the church leaders, and one reasons he's talking about the accomplishments with people and self-helped people and helping them through the problems through psychiatric, religious, financial, ect. -- neil: even in the late stage of the game, many people don't know the guy. >> yeah, and the reason that's so because we -- i was a bishop when i ran for the senate, doing all of the things any pastor would do, only not paid for it because it's voluntary, and, you know, you're called to the positions, and you really don't talk about those. it's difficult for him to talk about what a great human being he is. neil: he didn't have problems talking about a few more details in the tax plan, senator, and among the things advocated, other than the 20% cut in taxes across the board for everyone, he built in a few more dots saying he'd limit deductions. put a $70,000 figure on that. a lot of folks heard that and said, even with the tax
that and i don't think that either harry reid or john boehner know how it's going to come out much less met ronnie or barack obama so i'm not going to pretend other than it is going to be an all-consuming thing that frankly i don't think the public is ready for or has any idea is coming. i think no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and the end of the year is -- i should say the election at the end of the year is going to be very traumatic for the country. >> let me refine this may and maybe do fred first and then maybe glen. sometimes, doing something to entitlement and domestic spending, it's pretty inevitable and those are things that the democrats are going to have to deal with and thinking about sort of the political consequences of that and on the republican side, there has got has got to be more revenue and defense is going to take some kind of a hit and that is going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or glen if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or john boeh
